Indie | Just Kiddin’ – Thinking About It (ROOM8 Remix)

Posted by on January 14, 2015


This promo just landed in my dropbox and I have to say I was blown away. The boys at Room8 have flipped the original tune and added a futuristic element oriented by midnight sounds and carried away into a 90s inspired rock vibe. This one is catchy – they utilized the vocals effectively and constructed a quality tune. I’m very impressed by Room8 and look forward to what they have in store for us.

Albums, Compilation | EDM: Every Day Matters Compilation

Posted by on November 9, 2013

The Every Day Matters Compilation is truly amazing. It is a 78 track compilation – that’s right, 78 – with all the proceeds going to charity. The charity being supported is SportRelief, which provides shelter to young people living on the streets and who are victims of domestic abuse in the UK. Worldwide they help with giving education, fresh water, and life-saving vaccines to people. Even though there is such a large volume of tracks, the quality is not sacrificed and it hits multiple genres.  Many well known artists are on it, including Rameses B, Arkasia, Droptek, Felxprod, RoughMath, Feint, TwoThirds, Televisor, T-Mass, Varien, PhaseOne, SirensCeol, PrototypeRaptor, Veela, NCT, Biometrix, Bustre, Muzzy, Subformat, Insan3lik3, Dexcell, Karanda, Elliot Berger, Direct and many more! Some of my favorites tracks besides the ones posted below are the tracks by Neutralize, Soundnet, and Arkasia. But seriously, they are all really great tracks and although the compilation is $16 USD, (£9.99 GPD), you’re definitely getting your money’s worth.  If you want to learn more, you can check out the promo video for the compilation here.

Exclusive, Featured, Interviews | Tom Swoon Interview [FNT Exclusive] + “Asura” Edit

Posted by on August 19, 2013

Tom SwoonPolish producer / DJ, Dorian Tomasiak or Tom Swoon, formerly Pixel Cheese, has been on a meteoric rise in the past year or two, with his brand of melodic big-room house that has seen strong support from the likes of Avicii, Nervo, Paul Oakenfold and others. Just two years out of high school, he still can’t believe that 3 years ago he was making bootlegs and remixes as Pixel Cheese and here he is now headlining his own shows and playing main stage at some of the biggest festivals in Europe. He has had a busy summer, touring the globe playing in Ibiza, the European festival circuit, some shows here in the US, with an upcoming gig at Creamfields. Last week he was in New York for a show at Lavo and we had the chance to ask him about a variety of topics from his DJing style, advice for new producers (Digidoric was his very first producer name) and what he has coming up. Read the full interview after the jump and check out his free edit with NYC duo, Filtercrush of their impressive track with Jack & Jordan “Asura”. If you don’t like the “Clarity” vocals on top, the instrumental mix will be coming soon.



Dubstep | Konec – The Void (Ft. Anna Yvette) + Exclusive Interview

Posted by on May 24, 2013

It has been a great pleasure watching Konec grow as an artist over the past year and even more exciting to see what the future holds for this young talent. After months of hard work he is on the verge of his new EP release entitled ‘Futures EP’ on Datsik’s label, Firepower Records. It’s great to see an artist work so hard and receive the credit they deserve for the countless hours they spend working on their craft. Up until now we have been getting little glimpses of Konec’s EP through mixes, but with the EP release in four days we finally get a free download of what I consider to be one of the most emotional dubstep tracks I have heard thus far this year. Anna Yvette has clearly been busy working with some of the best producers around and she deserves her recognition just as much as Konec does. With the EP release soon approaching, I recommend everyone listen to the iTunes previews of the tracks and Pre-order the EP right after, because it is going to be worth the purchase. Up to this point I have only see positive responses about the EP and imagine only better things to come. Check out the previews below as well as the exclusive interview with Konec about writing the EP and other matters.

Events, Videos | Watch: Above & Beyond’s Incredible Wynn Promo Video

Posted by on May 18, 2013

Above & Beyond WynnNormally I don’t even bother to watch these videos or even given them the slightest thought because they are all the same. It is some DJ saying just “how excited” he is to be playing at X club in Vegas, as they pay him some exhorbinant amount of money to schmooze with VIPs wasting thousands on bottle service. Deadmau5 will be making 850,000 dollars per show at Hakkasan over the next 2 years if you want an idea of the money being thrown around. However, Above & Beyond, never one to follow the trend, come up with an innovative and incredible video, taking James Bond influences and apply it to their promo video for their short residency at the Wynn and their various clubs. Watch it all the way through, it is great to see their personalities and decent acting abilities shine through. Dates for their shows are below and you can get more info on the Wynn website here.

DJ-Set, Progressive House | Avicii – Promo Mix 2013

Posted by on April 10, 2013

Avicii Ultra 2013
On the heels of his very controversial Ultra MainStage set where he premiered a lot of the new material from his new album and there was a kazoo, Avicii gives us a further glimpse into the future with this hour long promo mix that features several of those aforementioned country-house tracks. He starts in the mix with some upcoming more traditional Avicii tracks, including the massive collab between him and Lana del Ray, before launching into some of his more experimental material that put the world on notice at UMF. To be honest I was one of the people who hated on the stuff at the time because mainly I just did not know how to process what was going on and rejected it outright for the moment. But, after listening to it on some nice speakers in a calm setting, it is growing on me and I think it will grow on most Avicii fans as well because I would like to think that his fans are open minded enough to give it a second chance. Maybe that is naive, but I would like to think that is case.

Boston has never been seen as a “birthplace for hip-hop”.  Lately, Boston artists have been making an extra push to earn the respect of hip-hop fans worldwide and solidify their city as a reputable grounds for breeding authentic hip-hop talent.  Artists such as Moufy and The Dean’s List have earned their accolades from their success of the past few years, but there’s always new talent emerging.  The latest MC on the brink of birth outside the walls of Boston hip-hop is Jeff Replay.  The 19-year old artist is 1/3 of the collective called ‘Pilot Nation’.  The group is in the process of compiling a mixtape collectively which at the moment, is slated for a spring release.  “The Runway” holds its place as a promo single leading up to the official releases in the coming months.  Knocking production from CPR, excellent camera work from Decriminals and no shortage of depth in his lines from Replay.  I think we got one, Boston.
